daphne (barberry?), golden dawn, wonderful lunch, positive start, what does it mean to be human in the digital age?



The daphne - or is it a barberry? - in the garden, with its golden leaves, is luminous in the dawn from the bedroom window. In daylight it is still the garden's bright centre of hope.

Astonishingly heavy rain at times yesterday - ditches and brooks filling up.

Met old friends for lunch in Oxford. A wonderful time we had. Agreed that it had been too long since we saw each other last - nearly ten years, was it?

First week of the year over. Feeling positive about the working year ahead.

Meantime, there's a terrific event coming up at the Mathematical Institute, Radcliffe Observatory Quarter, Woodstock Road, Oxford on Thursday 21st January, 5.30-7 pm, which is open to all and is to be followed by a drinks reception - it's entitled, What Does it Mean to be Human in the Digital Age? It's part of the Humanities and the Digital Age series that is running this year.
